2Q23 Results Wrap-up: Robust Share Gains Offset By Slow Recovery

Sea Ltd (SE US)

TikTok Shop ban threat positive for Sea


Potential boost for Shopee TikTok Shop has been accused of unfair competition by local MSMEs through cheap imports. Indonesia is one of Shopee's largest markets and the platform has ~40% share of online sales. Regulatory action that restrains TikTok Shop should result in market-share shifts in favour of existing platforms, including Shopee (which is owned by Sea). Further, TikTok shop's relatively lower fee structure and aggressive investments in Indonesia have spurred Sea to invest more heavily in subsidies and marketing to protect market share. Any regulation that restrains TikTok is likely to result in a more rational competitive market.

Genting Malaysia (GENM MK)

Two latent catalysts in the United States taking shape


Maintain BUY call and MYR2.77 DCF-TP Over the last 2 weeks, newswires reported 2 events which are significant to GENM. First, the RFA process for 3 downstate commercial casino licenses in New York State has resumed, which we gather favours GENM. Second, the Mashpee Wampanog tribe, which is indebted to GENM, could be trying to revive construction of its own integrated resort, the FLRC. Under a ‘blue sky’ scenario, our long term (FY25E) earnings estimates could be lifted by 74% and DCF-TP could be raised by 31% to MYR3.62.
